These are all the different cloud types:


Cirrus, Stratus and Cumulus why are clouds called that why are they named in the first place who named them, have you ever thought about it wondered? Well if you have read this to find out more.

Luke Howard was a pharmesist but he had a passion for clouds he wanted to be a meteorologist but he was so busy watching the clouds the only class he payed attention in was Latin and because of that he acutely had a good understanding of clouds because he observed them so much he built a understanding.

He found out that clouds have many shapes but few forms such as cirrus which means hair in latin you see Cirrus clouds high in the air on sunny days, Stratus which means layer or sheet wich you can see on alright days in the low section of the sky and lastly Cumulus wich means heap or pile in Latin this is also a low cloud, so there you have it Luke Howard named the clouds that we see in the sky today. 

SLC Reflecton

Description: Yesterday I had my student led conference with Troy and my mum. The teachers gave us some questions to answer about my SLC.

Image:

1) How do you think you did on your SLC? What was the highlight?
Having the chance to share my learning with my mum, because I don't get todo that very often and since that was last SLC at school I wanted to make it memorable. 

2) What did you do differently to make your SLC stand out?
Well I think that I made mine stand out by sharing my learning without looking at the post really sharing for the heart.

3) How will you make your Home Led Conference in Term 3 be awesome? What things might you do to make it awesome?
I could make it interesting by making them feel like they are part of the learning weather it be asking them questions in a different language or simply asking themmaths questions.
